In Office & At Home Dental Whitening
Over time, your teeth may darken or become discolored. The most common cause for this discoloration includes consumption of certain foods and beverages such as coffee, tea, and soda. The regular use of tobacco products, the exposure to excessive fluoride and certain medications during childhood tooth development.
Restoring your youthful bright smile is our priority. Tooth whitening is a cost-effective solution to a dark or dull smile, restoring brightness to your natural dentition.
Research and clinical studies indicate that whitening teeth is a safe procedure when performed according to accepted professional protocol and under the supervision of a trained professional. We, in fact, consider tooth whitening the safest cosmetic dental procedure available. Let us know at any time if you would like to begin the process.
For the at-home whitening, an impression of your teeth is taken to make a specialized mouthtray to hold the bleaching gel against the teeth. With only a few hours of wear per day, the special bleaching agent bubbles stains out of your enamel without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the brightness you want, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your new smile.
For a brighter whiter smile without the wait, Dr. Mendlowski offers Opalescence Boost*, an in-office chemically activated whitening treatment that offers results in about an hour. Opalescence Boost* is chemically activated, so it starts working as soon as it is placed on your teeth and does not require a hot, uncomfortable light to produce results. A safe dentist-supervised procedure, Boost* is the ideal choice for in-office tooth whitening.
Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can harm the gums and teeth, it’s better to use products that our practice recommends.
